Not only non English ones.

Just looked at the members list & IMHO 99% of those registered this week I'd say are spammers.

We get a shed load on the vodc and the way i spot them is we have a question on the registration process, 'what car do you drive' all the spammers write 'man' or a series of random letters!

Do they have to confirm their e-mail address and then enter the mod queue?

How about anybody sending a spam post we all send a PM to telling them where to stick it i.e. pound their email with spam in return?  ;)

Or, if we've got their email address, sign them up to everything & anything possible.  ;D

Yes every new member has to be manually approved. Even so, there seems to be a loophole somewhere, either that or one of our mods is blind!!!!

Coincidentally ? we seem to have a huge increase in the number of 'guests' viewing the site ???

I wonder if this is connected with the spammers in some way :-\

I doubt if they will ever read any of their personal messages - they only post.

As for their email address its only there so they can register. Once that is done they will never use it again. Thats assuming its not someone elses email address anyway !.

Old age means wondering: Do I really have to struggle to become an expert in something I might never need to do again.

Over 150 posts, many of them in existing topics.  Took me a while!
I noticed that one of the posters was already on the ban list.

Do you have access to put a Captcha onto the registration process? That'll stop any automated process registering and posting.

There is a captcha on there and it is set to maximum difficulty.
This is getting really frustrating!
